TWISTY is a curled kale suitable for both babyleaf and full sized production. TWISTY can be grown year round and shows strong tolerance to downy mildew in the cooler months. TWISTY is mid-dark green in colour and produces high numbers of uniform leaves making it ideal for salad mixes. The frilled margins and thick leaves allow for high yields and ensures long shelf life. TWISTY is an ideal variety to complement Onyx and Red Russian in an all kale mix.
